Nursing Care

In every Porthaven home, highly trained and dedicated staff are on hand 24 hours every day of the year to provide nursing support to our residents. We are able to care for people with a wide range of health needs from those who may need more care than can be properly provided in their own home, through to people with specialist nursing needs due to conditions such as Parkinson’s, motor neurone disease or multiple sclerosis.

Whether convalescing after a major operation or requiring long term care, our qualified registered nurses and carers will provide professional care to every resident in an attentive and respectful manner. Individual needs and preferences are always recognised and incorporated into detailed care plans reflecting the physical, intellectual and emotional needs of each and every resident.

Our nursing bedrooms are all designed to combine the practical features required to provide excellent nursing care, including call bells and full wheelchair accessibility, but as importantly are designed to be homely and comfortable. We are a care home, and not a hospital or institution. That’s why all our nursing residents have large, individual private bedrooms with en suite wetrooms, televisions, telephone and internet access, allowing our residents to keep in touch with their families and the outside world at all times.

Excellent care isn’t just about professional standards, high staffing ratios and beautiful surroundings, it’s also about enjoying living and looking forward to the days ahead. Every resident benefits from our award-winning activities and wellbeing programme, delicious home-cooked meals at breakfast, lunch and dinner in their own rooms or our restaurants, as preferred, as well as being in an environment where fun, laughter, friendship and happiness are all encouraged to promote physical and emotional well-being.
